Acylomus sp., male
Moved from Shining Flower Beetles. ID'd from specimen, now a photo-voucher. Thanks John.

I always have difficulty with these but I think I've got this one right. The hind tibiae are quite expanded (best seen at the top of the first photo) with one very long spur and one very short spur. This seems to be a feature of this genus. Genitalia dissected for future identification.
